Little Mix – British rock, pop, and R&B girl band
Little Mix was formed in 2011. The group appeared during one of the seasons of the popular British talent show X-Factor. The lineup consists of Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Perrie Edwards.
Initially, each one of the girls was planning to participate in the X-Factor by performing solo. However, the judges decided that they would do better as a group. As a result, Little Mix won the contest. After the huge success, during a live broadcast, the four girls agreed to continue working together. It wasn’t a tough decision to make since they were already offered a contract with Syco Music. The success was virtually unavoidable considering the track record of the groups created by Simon Cowell.
In 2012, the band released its first LP, DNA, which featured such hits as "Wings", "DNA", and "Change Your Life". All of them reached high spots on the charts and became commercially successful. The album sold over 450,000 copies in the UK and 200,000 in the USA. It became very popular in Australia and Ireland. After the LP’s release, the fans constantly tried to book Little Mix for their events. However, the young women rarely agreed due to a busy schedule.
